Low profile cooler for Asus ROG Maximus VI Impact biuld - Page 3

post #21 of 30
Well I might have a ruler nearby, maybe the height will help? I also have avexir core series ram, So need to be aware of the blackwing chokes up top, of the ram, and of the daughterboard soundcard.

Here's a fairly detailed drawing with measurements. How about you use it first. If you need something not measured there let me know. thumb.gif

The NH-L12 is a great cooler if you don't have enough room in your case for big tower coolers. I used to own the NH-L12 for one my builds that I ended up selling and it was able to handle my 3770K at stock settings just fine.

remember the case, it only has 60mm clearance. and on maximus vi impact.

That being said, I'm left with AXP 100 and Samuel 17.
Which is better in terms of performance? Although AXP 100 might not fit due to RAM Avexir, not due to the audiocard daughterboard.

Based on performance comparisons, I went with the Samuel 17 over the AXP-100. The Samuel 17 only fits in one configuration (with the overhang over the rear motherboard I/O). It's not ideal, but it gets the job done well until there are alternatives.

Perfect! ty mate, I will receive it tomorrow and hearing it's better than axp and that it fits the impact, great news!

My only downside will be that I have to buy a decent fan, and I would like 2-3 options so I can actually find one in stock!

What about the Thermalright AXP-200 it is suppose to work for Maximus VI impact because it was designed by ASUS and Thermalright together.

I tried the AXP-200 in my small Silverstone RVZ01 case, it did not fit with the Maximus VI Impact. It would only work in two directions, and the only direction that would have worked within my case would have hit my PSU past the DRAM slots. The other direction extends past my case limits by the I/O.

The AXP-100 I can confirm does fit with the Maximus VI Impact, with the curved heatpipes facing the DRAM. That's the only way.

But did you have to use low profile ram ?
